    I once had impure thoughts. Oh, and I pluck my ear hair.
    So I'd been sniffin' around for a used Ibanez ATK 300 (4 string) at just the right price and lo and behold, I found a black one on eBay today for a Buy it Now of $200.00 (with hardshell case). Spastically, I "Bought it Then" and will now await its arrival.

    200 smacks for what will now be #7 in my house (wife only knows of numbers 1-4 to date ;) :p :( :D ). Anyway, if this bad boy has the slap sound I remember/undertstand it to have, methinks I'll be pleased, especially at that price.

    FEAR! Utter, unabashed FEAR! It can motivate a man to do most anything. ;)

    Congrats! I LOVE my ATK305. Sounds like you got a good deal, too! I payed just a tiny bit over that, but someone messed with the bridge...they cut off the pickup surround. Doesn't bother me....I can rest my thumb on the pickup easier now. I think I'll be putting my V-Bass pickup on it soon. Great sound, great feel, a bit heavy, but damn! I just love the thing! It's sending my Am.Std. Jazz into retirement.
